When three street Gangs (The Dreads, The Shavers and The Dragons) terrorize a neighborhood, four members of a local Gym (Conner, Chief, Javier and Tina) join forces to help stop the baddies. Together, they use their unique combat specialties to take out the gang members and defeat the person responsible for this mess, the evil Mr.Big!
Guardians of the 'Hood is a 2.5D side-scrolling fighting game which features nice digitized sprites similar to Pit-Fighter and sprite scaling effects to give a feel of depth. Taking on the role of either Conner, Chief, Javier or Tina, you must advance through four areas of the city clearing out the gang infestation. You will have to cope with a variety of thugs and to defeat these bad guys/girls, you have an arsenal of punches, kicks, wrestling moves and all sorts of weapons you can pick up along the way, such as parking meters, car bumper covers, trash cans and a lot of other things you may find.
